    It seems that the first pip through the egg takes forever for little chickies. Once they make that hole, they just want to sit there for hours, driving you nuts!

    After almost 24 hours, this little girl (HOPEFULLY!) finally busted free:

    I tried to give her some food, but she wasn't game, instead she ran for my hand:

    Hopefully, we'll have more little chickies tommorow.

    Thanks! This is my first time with Cochins. Does anyone know what color she will likely grow into based on her baby coat?
